Alpha Psi Lambda-National, Inc. Zeta Chapter Dream Scholarship

Scholarship Overview:
Since 1985 Alpha Psi Lambda has been the first and largest co-ed fraternity in the nation. Zeta chapter was founded at the University of Illinois at Chicago in 1993, and since then has worked for the needs and concerns of Latino/a students. As a Latino based organization, we understand how difficult it is to pay for higher education, especially when one might not receive federal funds. Therefore, as an organization, Alpha Psi Lambda, Zeta Chapter will recognize one student in good academic standing who demonstrates outstanding leadership skills regardless of residential status. In addition, preference will be given to the individual who demonstrate financial need. The Noble brothers and sisters of Alpha Psi Lambda at Zeta Chapter are proud to announce our Annual, Alpha Psi Lambda, Zeta Chapter – Dream scholarship with one award ranging from $500 – $1,000.
